Although they might have their ups and down (just like any other family), there’s one thing we’ll always know for sure about Prince William and Prince Harry: Their mom, Princess Diana, passed down a ton of love to each of them.
We’re also sure that even though the brothers seem to have hit a rough patch lately, they still feel Diana’s affection radiating between them. Judging by the adorable family photos of the three of them together below, it would be impossible for them not to!
Keep scrolling to see all the joy Diana shared with her sons. Who knows, William and Harry might be looking back at these same snaps right about now and remembering their younger days together, too.
This precious photo of Diana with her boys in 1985 always makes us smile — and wonder if William and Harry kept up with piano lessons over the years!
Diana clearly loved playing around with the little princes, as we can see in this snapshot of them in the backyard of their Highgrove home.
The doting mom always kept a close eye her sons, like on this 1987 family trip to Spain.
It’s almost hard to believe William’s own children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, posed for similar first day of school photos 30 years after this sweet snap was taken in 1989.
Diana showed off her serious mom skills with a protective hand on Harry and her elbow securing William in this ski lift.
Is it just us, or are the boys making the exact same face in this photo from a trip to Niagara Falls with their mom in 1991?
We bet Diana was always ready to sweep William and Harry into a big, tight hug!
Looks like they all caught a case of the giggles while cozied up on this carriage ride in Austria.
There’s no denying Diana enjoyed taking the young prices on adventures! Here they are enjoying a ride with some friends at Thorpe Park in 1993.
Diana always set the best example for William and Harry with her kindness toward others, something they have both carried on over the years.
Here she is giving William some pointers on signing his name on his first day at Eton College in 1995. Harry seems to be paying close attention so he’ll know what to do when he joins his big brother at the same school a couple years later.
We also love that although it was William’s big day, you can catch a glimpse of Diana holding young Harry’s thumb for a quick special moment as they walked up to Eton.
